(Thyer 2012) He applied ideas of individual systems, parts, and processes to understanding the entirety of an organism. Applying this to systems as a family, we can see that a family operates as a unit with interrelated systems that affect the unit either as a whole or within the individuals. Referring clients to specialists and connecting clients to resources, allows the social work to help the client navigate between each of the systems and ultimately help the client’s situation. In reference to the Jarvis family, the social worker recommended the intervention is to seek specialized help to help the children better get over their traumatic experience. Furthermore, she recognized that Mrs. Jarvis too would benefit from speaking with someone to address how it had affected her and her future
Unit 02 Principles of Personal Development in Adult Social Care Settings. 1.1 Explain what reflective practice is Reflection is the personal examination of your own thoughts and actions, it is about thinking things over. Reflection is an important human activity in which people recapture their experience, think about it, mull over and evaluate it. When working in an adult care setting this means being conscious about how you interact with colleagues, your clients and the environment. It means thinking about how you could have done something differently, what you did well, what you could have done better, how could you improve what you did.
Both theories focus on the family as a unit and how their influence contributes to the success of the individual. By using these theories when working with the family will help everyone to be a support system for the other which aids in coping with their current changes. The difference between the both will complement the nursing process as it helps to give a full evaluation of the nursing unit. Focusing on the strength of the family stress theory will “analysis how families experience and cope with stressful events [where as the transition theory will help the nurse to] understand and predict the transitions families experience over time by combining role theory, family development theory and life course theory” (Kaakinen, 2015, p.70).

The individual and the family as a whole can monitor things such as vulnerability factors, emotions, and responses to emotions, which all can be tracked. It can also lead to an increased awareness of the internal experiences that one may have. Self-monitoring even serves as a monitoring agent for family members as well as therapists by providing all parties about how much progress is being made. The self-monitoring method can be useful after treatment by helping clients to gain an increased understanding and self-awareness of different patterns of behavior which may be
Secondly, establishing a safe place for all family members, map out the boundaries, determine who is the hierarchy in the family structure by evaluating and assessing the family, and transform the structure by diminishing the signs/indicators identified in the assessment with intervention methods. The key concepts of structural family therapy include family rules, sustain homeostasis, compose healthy relationships and principles, by examining the cover or overt rules that govern the family. Furthermore, instill the pattern/function within the family to address challenges head-on without chaos and dysfunction, to join the family system and understand the symmetrical relationships, while recovery of an individual
The counselor is not to accept nor approve of the values of a client who is in therapy. Having disagreement or not accepting the client’s values should not affect if the client is accepted as a person. The client’s values and how the issues associated with their values establish an issue in counseling the families of others. In family therapy as well as any other type of therapy session, the counselor should remain neutral. As therapist we should not impose our value systems on clients.
Family therapy is helpful to families that have trouble, problems, or issues within the system, which helps with families members improve communication and resolved conflicts. I believe that if a therapist was supposed to come and help my family with whatever problem there is, it will be successful. In the book, it states that relatively recent research related to common factors that cut across approaches focuses on how effective therapists bring "successful" models to life( blow et al 2007 pg341). I feel as though in most cases that is true. The therapist is most effective when among other behaviors they are able to build an alliance and engage with clients, great sense of hope, which I feel as that every individual or family needs, and the expectation of positive outcome.
This review explains how to treat an anorexia nervosa patient and how to help clients to find solutions to the symptoms that occur during this strategic family therapy intervention. The results from the strategic family therapy have proven to be successful with a lifelong experience. It was once stated (Murray2013) that limited evidence on strategic family therapy perspective on adult eating disorders have become known. Anorexia nervosa is a disorder that affects a client psychological state of mind and not only does this disorder affect the individual, but also the people that surround them. Therefore, this condition is very challenging to solve it might take more time than normally to solve symptoms for the duration of the strategic family therapy

Question 3: What are the personal characteristics that you believe are most essential in order for a therapist to be authentic and client centered? According to Wampold (2010), authenticity refers to communication to the client that the therapist truly wants to know how the client is doing. While Rogers (1980) described client centered is primarily about relationship. He also shared that the more authentic the therapist is, the more they are engaged with clients and the more beneficial it will be for the client. The first most essential personal characteristic is empathetic.
